Outdoor Education: Reception - Year 2
All Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils take part in ‘Woodland Adventure.’ The sessions take place once every Half Term for half a day, resulting in six sessions per academic year. Each session will have two interwoven themes running through them. The first being the academic curriculum and the second being the great outdoors and all it offers as a teaching and learning tool.
In its simplest form the learning intentions from ‘Woodland Adventure' stems from the school's academic curriculum and helps the children to learn and bring lessons to life.
The Great Outdoors:
The sessions are also dedicated to the appreciation of nature and the abundant life lessons that can be learnt by working collaboratively or independently in a known outdoor environment.

‘We live in an age where much of our establishment is now under question and rightly so. Long held traditions, religions and major institutions are under scrutiny, yet are enough of us asking the fundamental questions? What is the true purpose of our education system? Why do we sit at desks for much of the day at school for over ten years? Are we teaching our pupils the life skills they need?'
